Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

**Due to a new construction between us and the Mexican Gulf, the views will not be as depicted. We have not taken new pictures as it's not finished as of April 2017. The proximity to the beach, restaurant and amenities are all the same though :-D**

5 reasons why you will love our condo***

*LOCATION!

Close to the beach, grocery store, restaurants and everyday needs. 'We really appreciate not having to use a car to buy milk. Also, with several restaurants within half a mile, it's so nice not to have to take turns driving'.

*QUIET!

This condo is on the calm stretch of Gulf Drive, with little traffic. No restaurants are so close that they will disturb you. Our condo is one of only four units in the building.

*BRIGHT and AIRY!

Plenty of windows on three sides make it bright and welcoming.

*SPACIOUS!

Ample living and sleeping space make you feel like you can stretch out and relax.

*FRESH NEW LOOK!

We have replaced floor surfaces in all rooms as well as updated furniture to make it fresh and inviting. Well equipped for a pleasant stay.

(but don't take our word for it, read the reviews... :-)

About Tomas and Marie Dahlgren

Marie was an exchange student in Ohio over 30 years ago. She's visited USA several times per year ever since and consider it to be her second home.

Tomas had never been to the US before visiting it with me, but he just loves the area!

Tomas and Marie Dahlgren purchased this condo in 2008

Why Tomas and Marie Dahlgren chose Anna Maria Island

We chose Anna Maria Island because it is such a relaxed, welcoming feeling here.

When you live a busy life, this is really the place to unwind.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo building only has 4 units, so there's a very private feel to it.

It is one of the larger 2 bedroom condos on the island, and has windows on three sides, which makes it bright and cheerful.

We have decorated it in a contemporary, yet warm style.

Our place is one of the best equipped places that you'll find. We have quality kitchen utensils and most everything that you might need during your stay is supplied.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We left the cold and snow in Minnesota and headed to Anna Maria Island for 4 fantastic weeks. Upon entering the Tropical Sunset condo, we were very excited to see how large and clean it was. The kitchen was well equiped, the bedrooms were spacious, with plenty of storage, and the living/dining areas were very comfortable. Add the incredible view from the roof top deck, and we couldn't ask for more! Our grandson liked having additional TV's and the pool. I much prefer the beach which is right across the street.



We ate at two restaurants for the first time this trip and highly recommend both of them; The Sign of the Mermaid and Eat Here. The food and service were outstanding at both restaurants. Another first this trip was a one hour Segway rental. What fun it was to zoom around the Island for an hour.



As always, we spent a day at Egmont Key, a Florida State Park accessable only by boat. It is a beautiful place with old fort ruins, great shelling, and huge turtles roaming the island. It is a beautiful, peaceful paradise that is well worth the effort it takes to get there.



This well maintained unit is everything it advertised - and more!

Holmes Beach
Car: not necessary

Anna Maria is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation. This narrow island with its sugary white sand, does not have any high rises, in fact building codes prevent the construction of houses with more than 2 building storeys above a carport.

7 miles of white sand stretch on the west side of the island. That's the heart and soul of the island.

There are several restaurants and shops within walking distance. The island's biggest grocery store is also easily reached by foot. If you don't want to drive or walk, there is a free trolley driving up and down the island.

Sarasota is considered to be the 'cultural capital' of Florida with art galleries, theaters and an Opera House, and of course you have beach/sea activities, theme parks and shopping in the area.

Welcome to a slice of paradise!

So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute wonderful vacation!

Our 5, almost 6 year old, LOVED that she had a TV in "her" room.

We were concerned about the ease and distance between the beach and the condo but we learned that it was actually closer and easier access than some condos we've stayed at which were directly on the beach!

We also appreciated that the shower didn't have those sometime common water savers where the water lightly sprinkles on you :-) The decor was beautiful and the sofas very comfy!

We loved our stay and definitely plan to be back!

We love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice and really love it. It's a quick walk to the beach. It has a pool that rarely gets used. The condo has plenty of space. The furniture and beds are nice and comfy. Our only complaint about Anna Maria, is it's not such a big secret anymore. I wish it would stay that way!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here the week of Thanksgiving (11/19-11/26). The condo is spacious and well appointed with very well stocked kitchen. It is in a great location with the beach right across the street and a shopping center with restaurants, grocery store, drug store and bike/golf cart rental place within easy walking distance. The beach is beautiful and there are also several restaurants they are accessible from the beach and an easy walk as well. Just a quick note - the week we stayed at the apartment a new building went up across the street literally within one day. When we arrived a base of a foundation was laid and by the next day, cement blocks were up at least fifteen feet high. It did not block the ocean view entirely, but it is now obscured. Plus construction zones are never attractive. We realized this is not in the control of the owners and chalked it up to one of those funny things that can happen on vacation. I am unsure if the construction height is completed. Unfortunately, this condo no longer has an unobstructed view of the ocean.

Marie and Tomas were very easy to work with and very responsive to all questions and concerns. I would highly recommend renting from them and renting this condo for five people or less.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! Ever since the house in front of us was torn down, our condos have enjoyed direct views of the Mexican Gulf instead of the glimpses our pictures show. It now seems that with this new construction we are back to glimpses again. But as you mentioned, our condo is an excellent place for your vacation or family holidays with easy access to stores, restaurants and the beach. It's still only a short 1 minute walk to the cool, sugary sand!

Comfortable condo in good location.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a quiet area(at least in October) with easy access to the beach. It is well laid out with nice accommodations. We enjoyed the comfortable decor, found the kitchen well equipped, the appliances worked great. Would absolutely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Yes, the condo is in a quiet area and actually it is calm and relaxed year round. If one wants some action, it's a short 500 yard stroll to the public beach. There you'll find life guards, restaurants, beachvolley courts and a small children's playground. Enjoy!

Great Property, Great Location, User Friendly!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Property is very beautiful; clean, spacious, fully furnished and well-maintained. Amazing job on décor, and keeping up with rentals, sufficient lines, towels. Love the location. Washer and dryer were convenient. Everything was user friendly. Pool was clean and surroundings area. Property was close to beach access. Love the sun room. A few restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Tomas and Marie Dahlgren (Owner) was very helpful during booking.

Overall I would recommend this property and would consider staying again.

Owner's Response: Dear Nadika, I'm happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed our place! We are a large family and know how important it is that a place works for everyone in the family as well as being comfortable and pleasing to the eye. As you noted the location is very good, with a location on the beach access road and less than 100 yards to the beach as well as walking distance to shops (including the largest grocery store on the island) and restaurants. Welcome back! Marie and Tomas
